Again, this is easier said than done for Assistants, but we have many articles on how you can get yourself in the best position for promotions and alternative career paths.
If you transition into a new role within your current company, be prepared for some people struggling to take you seriously. People don’t like change, and if you have been an Assistant and moved into another profession, some people find it hard to move with the times.
When it comes time to apply for a new job, make sure that you highlight the skills that match the profession that you want to get into. Remember to be realistic because transitioning your career can take time.
Life is long, and just because you have been in one job, as the world’s best Assistant, for some years doesn’t mean you cannot make a change if you want to.
The skills, patience and courage that come with being an Assistant will stand you in good stead in any new role and make you a fantastic, very employable person.
Don’t put any limits on what you can achieve.
